    DOC ¶ READER House of Illusions ☆ HardcoverFREE Ï PAULINE GEDGE House of IllusionsThis seuel to House of Dreams also known as Lady of the Reeds was actually written as a response to the overwhelming reader popularity of the character of Thu in the previous book Gedge herself wrote that she had thought Thu’s story finished but Thu proved so popular with readers that she decided to bring her back Since in the previous book Thu unhistorically survives the door was left open for a seuel and here it isSince in real life Ramesses III Thu and Pentaweres were all actually killed as a result of the harem plot I almost prefer to think of this particular book as indulgent pure fiction merely set in a historical set

    DOC ¶ READER House of Illusions ☆ HardcoverFREE Ï PAULINE GEDGE House of IllusionsI love reading Pauline Gedge Her novels are always so easy to read but they're never simplistic with complex characterisations and plots Yet there's something about House of Illusions that just doesn't sit well with me and it's that the ending feels very idealised The two main figures of the conspiracy – the master puppeteer Hui and the assassin Thu – are left to live their lives as they like with no recriminations Thu at least was punished and I was rooting for her throughout House of Dreams and House of Illusions but she knowingly attempted to murder the king and killed an entirely innocent person She knew exactly what s

    DOC ¶ READER House of Illusions ☆ HardcoverFREE Ï PAULINE GEDGE House of IllusionsPauline Gedge as usual is probably the best writer of Egyptian Fiction Her characters and scenes are euisitely detailed whether she writes in the third or first person House of Illusions continues the story of Thu and her son who were separated under edict of Rameses III The ending and events although near the end were rather fantastical and almost predictable If you have not read Lady of the Reeds then you probably would not enjoy this book as much but as seuels go it is uite well done

    DOC ¶ READER House of Illusions ☆ HardcoverFREE Ï PAULINE GEDGE House of IllusionsCall me cold hearted but I actually liked the tragic ending of House of Dreams It was realistic and stayed true to the less than happy tone of the novel But I guess Pauline Gedge just couldn’t let it end there and wrote House of Illusions to give Thu her revengeThere is only one word to describe this seuel cliché The plot is like that of a Hollywood movie and Pauline Gedge had to do some serious fact changing to write this novel After all the real Thu and her grown son he was not an infant at the time of the plot were executed for their parts in the huge conspiracy to kill Ramses III Archaeologists speculate that the so called “Screaming Mummy” not for the weak of stomach was Ramses’ son Pentawere and that he was executed by drinking poison which accounts for the gruesome expression that gives this mummy his name The real Thu certainly didn’t get a happy ending and I don’t like how much the facts were changed to give

    DOC ¶ READER House of Illusions ☆ HardcoverFREE Ï PAULINE GEDGE House of IllusionsAn excellent seuel to the first Lady of the Reeds by Gedge Obviously read the first book in order for this book to make any difference uick and interesting it will occasionally surprise you It's also nearly impossible to read in multiple sittings I was nearly unable to drag myself away from it because when the story is put in motion it's pretty much a nonstop course of events with little disconnect or break You'll be holding your water in anticipation for a stopping point or pause that will nearly never come This isn't a spoiler necessarily but it mi
